According to a new poll, a hypothetical Tea Party candidate would receive more support than a GOP candidate. Who's the third party now?
It would take too long a new political party from scratch by the next election. I don't think that the GOP can be reformed in time if at all. Those options would be like choosing between a old, rat-infested mansion that has seen better days and a vacant lot. Fiscal conservatives should choose the Libertarian Party as their new home. At least we have the framework up.
